CALL FOR RESUMES: Expert Resumes & LinkedIn Profiles for Managers & Executives

May 08, 2019 Louise Kursmark

We are delighted to announce that we are writing the 4th edition of one of our best-selling resume books ... and we invite you to submit your very best work for publication in:

(4th Edition)

Deadline: Friday, May 31, 2019

All submissions that are selected for publication include the name and contact information for the contributing writer. It's a great way to build your visibility, strengthen your brand, and capture new clients! 


  1. You can submit up to 10 resumes and/or LI samples for consideration. You can submit just resumes, just LI profiles, or resumes with LI profiles for the same client. These samples must  be your “best” because of content, format, design, keyword presentation, unique challenge, or any one of a host of other reasons. ALL documents must be for management and executive-level job seekers.
  2. Although this book is not part of our "Modernize Your Career" series, we do expect that all submissions will follow the guidelines for writing, formatting, and designing a modern resume. Click here to read all 18 modernize principles.
  3. Fictionalize identifying information on all resumes – names, addresses, phones, email addresses, company names, client names, project highlights, etc.
  4. For LinkedIn profiles, submit content you created for the Headline, Summary, and Experience sections. You may also include notes about your recommendations for other areas of the profile if this additional information is essential to understand your strategy.
  5. Submit each document along with a brief statement of why that document. Your answer will be related to #1 above – why you chose that resume or LI profile and what you did to make it unique, overcome obstacles, solve problems, customize format and design ... you get the idea. Limit your descriptions to 2–4 sentences.
  6. Include the following information with each submission so that we can give you full credit and share accurate contact information in the book:
First & Last Name
Credentials & Certifications
Company Name
Email Address

Email your submissions – as attached Word files only – EACH document in a SEPARATE file – to AND

PROOFREAD VERY CAREFULLY before sending your submissions!
Deadline: Friday, May 31, 2019

NOTE #1:
Submitting a resume or LI profile does not guarantee publication. We will receive hundreds of submissions and, obviously, cannot publish all of them. We will select resumes based on quality of content, appearance, and impact.

NOTE #2:
By responding to this request, you are authorizing Emerald Career Publishing (Wendy Enelow and Louise Kursmark) to make minor content edits and design changes and publish your submissions.

Thanks, in advance, to all of you who will be contributing your work! Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We are very excited about doing a 4th edition of this book and, as always, are delighted to publish and promote our colleagues!
